Were you looking for the more illicit Guide to Ghetto Chemistry?

This guide will primarily be useful for chemists but may come in handy to any player and especially traitors.


These are some sample formulas for you chemists out there, ask about in game to learn more! Experimentation can be dangerous, or rewarding.

Pharmaceutical chemicals can usually be identified by a light pink-ish color.


The vast majority of chemicals you will be called on to make. Typically, a small amount of each should be kept on hand. Assuming the medical team is not incompetent, they should be able to keep everyone alive and quite healthy with your assistance.

Alkysine Formula: 1 part Chlorine, 1 part Nitrogen, 1 part Anti-Toxin
Lessens the damage to neurological tissue, effective even after catastrophic injury. Used for treating brain damage and also a fairly effective painkiller (Results in 2 units instead of 3).

Overdose limit = 30 units

Dylovene Formula: 1 part Silicon, 1 part Nitrogen, 1 part Potassium
A broad-spectrum anti-toxin, which treats toxin damage in the blood stream.

Overdose limit = None (Over 30u will have flavour effects and text however)

Arithrazine Formula: 1 part Hyronalin, 1 part Hydrogen
A very unstable medication used to treat the most extreme cases of radiation poisoning. May cause some brute damage to the patient, but such damage is easily treatable.

Overdose limit = 30 units (10u will do ~15 brute damage, 30u is toxin damage on top of this)

Bicaridine Formula: 1 part Inaprovaline, 1 part Carbon
An analgesic which is highly effective at treating brute damage. It is useful for stabilizing people who have been severely beaten, as well as treating less life-threatening injuries.

Overdose limit = 30 units

Cryoxadone Formula: 1 part Dexalin, 1 part Water, 1 part Oxygen
Required for the proper function of cryogenics. Heals all standard types of damage very swiftly, but only works in temperatures under 170K (usually this means cryo cells). Can also slowly heal clone damage, such as caused by cloning or Slimes.

Overdose limit = None

Clonexadone Formula: 1 part Cryoxadone, 1 part Sodium, 5 units Plasma (catalyst)
Heals standard damage in the same as Cryoxadone, with the same temperature requirement. Significantly more effective than the former at treating clone damage, although both can be used simultaneously. Best used in cryo cells.

Overdose limit = None

Citalopram Formula: 5 parts MindBreaker Toxin, 5 parts Carbon
Prevents hallucination slightly

Overdose limit = None

Dermaline Formula: 1 part Kelotane, 1 part Oxygen, 1 part Phosphorus
An advanced chemical that is more effective at treating burns damage than Kelotane.

Overdose limit = None

Dexalin Formula: 2 part Oxygen, 5 units Plasma (catalyst)
Used for treating oxygen deprivation. In most cases where it is likely to be needed, the strength of Dexalin Plus will probably be more useful (Results in 1 unit instead of 2).

Overdose limit = None

Dexalin Plus Formula: 1 part Dexalin, 1 part Carbon, 1 part Iron
Used in treatment of extreme cases of oxygen deprivation. Even a single unit immediately counters all oxygen loss, which is hugely useful in many circumstances. Any dose beyond this will continue to counter oxygen loss until it is metabolized, essentially removing the need to breathe.

Overdose limit = None

Ethylredoxrazine Formula: 1 part Oxygen, 1 part Anti-Toxin, 1 part Carbon
Neutralises alcohol in the blood stream. Though it is commonly needed, it is rarely requested. Can also be used to counteract the effects of a Wizard's Disorient spell.

Overdose limit = None

Hyperzine Formula: 1 part Sugar, 1 part Phosphorous, 1 part Sulphur
A highly effective, long lasting muscle stimulant. It allows greater freedom of movement in bulky clothing although it has the side effect of causing some twitching. Dangerous in higher doses.

Overdose limit = 15 units

Methylin Formula: 1 part Hydrogen, 1 part Chlorine, 1 part Ethanol, 5 units Fluorine (catalyst)
An intelligence enhancer, also used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Also known as Ritalin. Allows monkeys (not diona nymphs) to understand human speech and improves their dexterity as long as they have some in their system. Dangerous in higher doses.

Overdose limit = 15 units

Hyronalin Formula: 1 part Radium, 1 part Anti-Toxin
A weak treatment for radiation damage. Considered to be useful mainly for genetic modification, where it reduces radiation levels, and thus the chance of genetic mutations.

Overdose limit = 30 units

Imidazoline Formula: 1 part Hydrogen, 1 part Carbon, 1 part Anti-Toxin
Effective in treating eye trauma. It heals damage caused by physical or chemical trauma, though it is ineffective in treating genetic defects in the eyes (Results in 2 units instead of 3).

Overdose limit = None

Inacusiate Formula: 1 part Anti-Toxin, 1 part Carbon, 1 part Water
Cures deafness instantly. Useful after an explosion.

Overdose limit = 30 units

Inaprovaline Formula: 1 part Oxygen, 1 part Carbon, 1 part Sugar
Inaprovaline is a synaptic stimulant and cardiostimulant. Commonly used to stabilize patients- it stops the rate of decline in a patient's body if it has reached 0% or lower.

Overdose limit = 60 units

Kelotane Formula: 1 part Silicon, 1 part Carbon
Treats burn damage effectively, preventing microbial growth and vastly speeding up healing of even full thickness burns.

Overdose limit = None

Leporazine Formula: 1 part Silicon, 1 part Copper, 5 units Plasma (catalyst)
This keeps a patient's body temperature stable. High doses can allow short periods of unprotected EVA, but prevents use of the cryogenics tubes.

Overdose limit = None

Lithotorcrazine Formula: 1 part Lithium, 3 parts Arithrazine, 1 part Uranium
Reduces radiation 'intake' for humans by 50%. Useful if you're going into a radioactive zone.

Overdose limit = None

Oxycodone Formula: 1 part Ethanol, 1 part Tramadol, 1 part Plasma
A very effective painkiller, about 250% as strong s Tramadol.

Overdose limit = None

Phalanximine Formula: 1 part Hyronalin, 1 part Ethanol, 1 part Unstable Mutagen
Used in the treatment of cancer, still useful for intensive toxins treatment. Causes moderate radiation and hair loss.

Overdose limit = None, but as said in effects, gives some radiation damage

Paroxetine Formula: 5 parts MindBreaker Toxin, 5 parts Oxygen, 5 parts Inaprovaline
Prevents hallucination, but has a chance of adverse effects.

Overdose limit = None

Ryetalyn Formula: 1 part Arithrazine, 1 part Carbon
Deactivates genetic defects and powers, restoring a patient to an ideal state. May be useful if genetics is unable to function properly. Deactivated effects return if the patient's genes are modified again.

Overdose limit = 30 units

Spaceacillin Formula: 1 part Cryptobiolin, 1 part Inaprovaline
A theta-lactam antibiotic. A common and very useful medicine, effective against many diseases likely to be encountered in space. Slows progression of diseases.

Overdose limit = 30 units

Synaptizine Formula: 1 part Lithium, 1 part Sugar, 1 part Water
Toxic, but treats hallucinations, paralysis, and stunned or weakened patients. It is metabolized very slowly. One unit is enough to treat hallucinations; two units is deadly.

Overdose limit = 30 (but even one unit will cause 60 toxin damage over approximately 4 minutes)

Tramadol Formula: 1 part Inaprovaline, 1 part Ethanol, 1 part Oxygen
A simple, yet effective painkiller. Very effective for patients in shock.

Overdose limit = None

Tricordrazine Formula: 1 part Inaprovaline, 1 part Anti-Toxin
A wide-spectrum stimulant, originally derived from Cordrazine. Is capable of healing all four main damage types simultaneously, however, it only heals each at around 2/5 of the efficiency of conventional chemicals. Because if its low potency, it's best used as a supplement to other medicines.

Overdose limit = None

Cryo Mixture and Speedcloning

When the dead are cloned, the freshly generated bodies suffer from major damage as well as genetic defects and brain damage. They are placed into a cryo tube filled with chems in order to return them to a normal state. The chems in the cryo tubes are stored in beakers, which can be inserted by simply clicking on the tube with the beaker in hand. To note, chems that are used for cryo tubes are used up much more slowly, but retain the same effects.

Cryomixes need to contain at least the following:

25-30u Cryoxadone - To heal all standard damage. Cryox heals all standard forms of damage quickly, but only at extremely low temperatures. Also heals clone damage, but slowly.
25-30u Clonexadone - To heal clone damage. Functions the same as Cryoxadone, but heals clone damage much faster. Stacks with Clonexadone, so both should be used if possible.
10u-15 Alkysine - To cure brain damage from recent clones.
5u Ryetalin - To cure genetic defects from recent clones. This will also remove any genetic powers.

Once these chems are added, fill the remaining beaker space with whatever medicines you like. Good choices are Antitox (to remove common poisons from bloodstream rather than just treat the toxin damage) and Dexalin Plus.

Other Recipes

These are either pure reactions that typically leave nothing remaining or other chemicals that have non-medicinal uses. Many of these are useful in the manufacture of grenades, but many can be quite dangerous.

Ammonia Formula: 3 parts Hydrogen, 1 part Nitrogen
An effective fertilizer which is better than what is available to the botanist initially, though it isn't as powerful as Diethylamine (Results in 3 units instead of 4).

Carp Pheromones Formula: 1 part Carpotoxin, 1 part Leporazine, 1 part Carbon
These artificial pheromones will make you smell like an alpha male space carp. Adult space carps will not bother you, while their children will follow you around. Don't expect them to be tricked easily, though; they won't be fooled if they've seen you before you applied the pheromones to yourself.

Chloral Hydrate Formula: 1 part Ethanol, 3 parts Chlorine, 1 part Water
A powerful sedative which causes death in doses around 15 units (Results in 1 units instead of 5).

Overdose limit = Time based: Will overdose after 152 seconds of uninterrupted metabolization. If in doubt, assume above 15u is lethal. Take note that, for example, injecting 10 units, waiting one minute, and then injecting 10 units again WILL cause a time-based overdose - even though at no point did the patient have over 15u at once. Make sure all Chloral Hydrate fully metabolizes before injecting again.

Soporofic (Sleep Toxin) Formula: 1 part Chloral Hydrate, 4 parts sugar
A less powerful sedative that takes a while to work, intended to help insomniacs and patients that are too aggressive to be treated normally. Is safe in large quantities. Can be counteracted with anti-toxin (Dylovene).

Creatine Formula: 1 part Nutriment, 1 part Bicaridine, 1 part Hyperzine, 1 part Unstable mutagen
A muscle-building drug that grants the user enormous strength, before their muscles seize and tear their own body to shreds. In practical terms, 1-25 units just causes toxin damage, and 26 units turns you into a hulk with all its associated benefits with the side effect of taking a little toxin damage over time. You'll remain as a hulk until it's all metabolized, at which point you'll take massive brute damage. This will be 100 points of damage at the very least, and can go as high as 700+ points' worth of damage- and that's not including the other associated effects, including broken bones, bleeding (internal and external), and limbs spontaneously falling off. A dose of 27+ units has similar effects, but causes no toxin damage at the expense of the hulk benefits lasting only 45 seconds before the previously mentioned gruesome death occurs. With the correct administration, it can be the most potent drug there is, but even at the best of times it is best considered a double-edged sword.

Overdose limit = Above 27 units is guaranteed fatal within 45 seconds. 26 units is fatal only if creatine levels in the bloodstream drop to zero after the initial dosage. Consequently, constant precise re-medication is vital for ensuring that enough creatine is present in the body to stave off death without overdosing oneself in the process.

Impedrezene Formula: 1 part Mercury, 1 part Oxygen, 1 part Sugar
A narcotic that impedes one's ability by slowing down the higher brain cell functions. Causes massive brain damage (Results in 2 units instead of 3).

Lexorin Formula: 1 part Plasma, 1 part Hydrogen, 1 part Nitrogen
Temporarily stops respiration and causes tissue damage. Large doses are fatal, and will cause people to pass out very quickly. Dexalin and Dexalin Plus will both remove it, however.

Lipozine Formula: 1 part Salt, 1 part Ethanol, 1 part Radium
Causes weight loss upon consumption.

Mindbreaker Toxin Formula: 1 part Silicon, 1 part Hydrogen, 1 part Anti-toxin

Plant-B-Gone Formula: 1 part Toxin, 4 parts Water -- OR -- 1 part Solanine, 4 parts Water
A potent herbicide which is useful to replace the limited supply the botanist starts with.

Polytrinic Acid Formula: 1 part Sulphuric Acid, 1 part Chlorine, 1 part Potassium
An extremely corrosive chemical substance. The slightest touch of it will melt off most masks and headgear, and it deals extreme damage to anyone who comes directly into contact with it. Spraying it on other items will usually melt them too, which does make it useful if the clown has covered the entire hallway in banana peels.

Silicate Formula: 1 part Aluminum, 1 part Silicon, 1 part Oxygen
Used to repair and reinforce windows with the silicate sprayer.

Sodium Chloride Formula: 1 part Chlorine, 1 part Sodium
Commonly known as salt, Sodium Chloride is often used to season food.

List of Chemicals

You have all sorts of things here, and can make so much. You can make medicines, foam, flash powder, poisons, space lube, window hardener, and so much more. The limit on combinations is a limit that exists only in your creativity (and the game engine). Be sure to be careful though, mixing the wrong chemicals can be bad for your health and please make sure you know what a chemical does before you use it. Experiment at your own risk.

Most pure chemicals are lethal or will cause heavy toxin damage if injected or ingested in their pure form.

Chemical Description Notes
Water A ubiquitous chemical substance that is composed of hydrogen and oxygen. Also known as Dihydrogen Monoxide. Put out toxin fires with this. Also good for cleaning, but people will slip on wet floors if they're running.
Oxygen A colorless, odorless gas.
Nitrogen A colorless, odorless, tasteless gas.
Hydrogen A colorless, odorless, nonmetallic, tasteless, highly combustible diatomic gas.
Potassium A soft, low-melting solid that can easily be cut with a knife. Reacts violently with water. Mixing with water will cause this to explode. Giving this to someone followed by water will usually kill them, but in very small doses (2u of each or less) it will remove all chemicals from that person's body immediately.
Mercury A liquid metal. Poisonous, ingesting or injecting it will cause brain damage.
Carbon A highly stable element found in organics.
Chlorine A noxious gas.
Fluorine A highly reactive chemical element.
Phosphorus A highly reactive element, glows on contact with oxygen.
Lithium A soft, silver metallic element.
Sulphur A foul smelling non-metallic crystalline element.
Sulphuric Acid A strong mineral acid with the molecular formula H2SO4. Very dangerous, do not splash on faces, eat, or inject people with this.
Radium Radium is an alkaline earth metal. It is extremely radioactive. Deals out radiation damage, and will raise the radiation level of the subject it is used on. Can be used to cure viruses as a treatment of last resort, but when it does so it has a 50% chance of dealing 100 toxin damage in the process.
Iron A metallic element, reacts with oxygen. Helpful for restoring lost blood, dose very generously. May be worthwhile to create a pill bottle of this. Also used in certain alcoholic concoctions.
Aluminum A silvery white and ductile member of the boron group of chemical elements.
Silicon A tetravalent metalloid, silicon is less reactive than its chemical analog carbon.
Plasma Liquefied plasma. Highly dangerous when ingested, must acquire from the mines.
Sugar The organic compound commonly known as table sugar and sometimes called saccharose. This white, odorless, crystalline powder has a pleasing, sweet taste.
Ethanol A well-known alcohol with a variety of applications. Do not drink unless seeking pure drunkatude.
Uranium A black, incredibly dense, slightly radioactive, actinide. Often used in its depleted state in military ballistics and heavy armor. Must acquire from the mines, radioactive!
Gold A dark yellow, dense, valuable conductive metal. Often used in electronics. Must acquire from the mines!
Silver A white, valuable conductive metal. Often used in harmonic wiring. Must acquire from the mines!
